Herbal Spells


Herbal medicine was early man's first line of defense against the many ills and accidents that plagued him. Ancient humans learned from the observation of animals, including birds, how to use leaves, earth, mud and water to make soothing applications. Although the methods were crude, several of today's medicines are based upon sources as simple as those of ancient man.

Some of the popular herbal remedies for people are:

•Backache: Valerian root •Headache: Feverfew •Muscle Aches: Capsaicum cream •Indigestion: Peppermint or Chamomile tea •Nausea: Ginger (tea, capsules, candy) •Depression: St. John's Wort •Anxiety & Stress: Valerian root •Colds and Flu: Echinacea •Coughs: Slippery elm •Menopause Problems: Black cohosh extracts •Sleep Problem: St. John's Wort or Valerian root.
